Illustmaker me

An off the cuff request for artists

I can't afford a commission right now, but I was wondering if an artist would be willing to help with some visual aids for the panel story645 and I are doing at The Witching Hour. It's based on the "Harriet Potter" post, where we switch all the genders and then complain about how it's anti-feminist. And I thought it would be fun to have some "illustrations" from the books to hold up as examples of the egregious sexism... what I was thinking was of pictures in the exact same poses as some of the MGP chapter pics, but with the characters' genders switched...

Mudbloods and Murmurs (Ron/Rhona looking sick and weak)
The Patronus (Harry/Harriet looking spooked by an insubstantial shade)
The Scar (Harry/Harriet doing a traditional Victorian fainting spell pose)
The Unknowable Room (Hermione/Herman confidently using magic while Ron/Rhona looks on docilely from a few steps behind her/him)

Nothing of vast import; I just thought it might be fun to have visual aids. And like I said, alas, I can't afford a commission just now. Anyone want to do it out of the goodness of your heart? It's parody, so it's fair use.
